The Annual Halloween Masquerade hosted by Buffalo Rising is back @ Statler City on Saturday, October 27.

This year, the Witches Ball is dedicated to the Legends of Rock ’n Roll. Let the 2018 Witches Ball take you on a Scareway to Heaven featuring music from legends like Hell-vis Presley, Janis Goblin, George Scareison, and Grave-id Bowie.

In keeping with the theme, the Witches Ball’s five event stages will be transformed into nightclubs fit for rockstars. Click here for the schedule.


Here’s what you can expect from Buffalo’s most epic Halloween event!

When you roll up to the Genesee Street entrance of Statler City (across from the Convention Center) you will be greeted by a fleet of vintage hearses. ID is required to be admitted to this 21+ event.

Become Buffalo famous, by posing for our photographers in front of the step n’ repeat, or walk the black carpet which will automatically enter you into our virtual costume contest. Photos taken at the event will be uploaded by Living in the Buff Studios live to our Witches Ball Facebook page. New this year, is a green screen photo booth, where you and your guests can act out your wildest dreams of super stardom! Also, be on the look out for the Living Dead Girls, who will be recording their podcast and may stop you for an interview. Sip some creative cocktails by NY’s largest kombucha brewery, Bootleg Bucha. Flavors will include, Apple Spice, Blueberry Lavender, and Ginger.

Our fabulous Queens of Dragdom will once again werq the stage to bring some of the world’s most beloved rock stars to life. Walk “The Sunset Strip” featuring The MaddTat2 716 Sideshow to satisfy the freak in you, extroverted-introverts might consider jamming with SE² Silent Disco, or wander to the lower level, formerly Club Rendezvous, and be transported to the infamous Viper Room Remix.

This massive event will once again feature dozens of local artists, psychics, musicians, DJs, and performers.
